Default How is Pineville to live?

My wife and I are looking for homes in the south Charlotte area and have come across Pineville, specifically the new Traditions in Pineville neighborhood. Anyone familiar with Pineville and/or that new neighborhood who cares to chime in? Is Pineville pretty dead (I know it's a very small town), or is there stuff going around it?

Pineville runs into S. CLT for all practical purposes, LOL. Is there some reason you want to be w/in Pineville city limits?

Pineville has lost any charm it has to Charlotte so I dont even really consider it a town with character. Crime, Over development and traffic. Pineville.

Not really, just want to be in either south Charlotte, Fort Mill or Rock Hill, since my wife will be working in Rock Hill. I heard Pineville was nice, and, from looking online, this Traditions in Pineville neighborhood looked really cool (neo-traditional homes) and reasonably priced.

Sunny, you hit on it. I am maybe 2 or so miles from the city limits of Pineville, yet it feels at that point that I am still in S. CLT. I never think about Pineville, even tho I am that close to it. It has no defining character. You are so right. You could ask me about businesses along 51 and I honestly cannot tell you wh/ ones would be considered Pineville and wh/ are Charlotte.

When I think of Pineville all I think of is the mall and all the furntiure stores and traffic. There isn't much else than that.

The first time I visited NC to explore real estate investing I stayed in Pineville. WOW, did I have second thoughts about investing in NC!
Glad I got over it.
Nights in Pineville are pretty lonely.

Traditions is located in the older section of Pineville (close to the old main street of Pineville where the antiques stores are located...well, for now anyway). I have driven by Traditions for over 4 years now and it seems to have really taken along time to sell. Seems like a rather odd location to me (but that is just my opinion), it's also close to the railroad tracks.

If you are open to resells (fairly new)...my suggestion would be to look at Whitley Mills (located in Fort Mill, SC). It's within your price range, it's convenient to Winthrop, Charlotte, shopping, good schools, lower taxes.......I might also add that if you are interested pose your questions on the SC side (York County subforum).

Good Luck to ya!

I would go with Fort Mill, I cant figure out why but everything around Pineville is booming and a great area. For some reason Pineville just never caught on.
